Ironically, one of the players Kevin is competing for a roster spot with is Dwayne Jones, a Morgantown-born big man out of St. Joseph's who's father was a defensive lineman at West Virginia in the 1980's. Jones and Pittsnogle were also competing for a roster spot last summer on the Boston Celtics. Ultimately, Pittsnogle was cut and Jones was traded to Cleveland. Jones had a big game on Thursday night, tallying 15 points and six rebounds.
Gansey and the Clippers came away with an 85-73 win over Minnesota in the nightcap of Thursday's action. The Olmstead Falls, Oh. native finished with seven points and three rebounds on the night, but also committed five turnovers.
Pittsnogle has the night off, while Gansey and the Clippers will square off with Memphis at 6:00.
